Description

Creamy and cheesy gratin that’s easy to make and so delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 head Head Of Cauliflower (roughly 1 Pound Size), Cored And Cut Into Florets
  • 4 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
  • ⅔ cups Grated Gruyere Cheese, Divided
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Onion, Peeled And Diced
  • 1 clove Garlic, Peeled And Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Thyme Leaves

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Boil or steam the cauliflower florets for about 15 minutes or until they are tender. Empty the pot into a colander in the sink. Drain well and let the florets sit in the colander for a few minutes so that more water drips out. Add them into a bowl with the cream cheese and coarsely mash together. The mixture does not need to be smooth. Add half of the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper.

While the cauliflower is cooking, add the olive oil and onion to a pan and saute on medium heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and thyme and continue cooking for one more minute. Remove from the heat and add the mixture into the mashed cauliflower mixture.

Pour into a baking dish (I used a 9×5 dish) and top with the remaining half of the cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.

I’ve never been a fan of cauliflower – I never found it tasty either cooked or as crudités. My husband likes cauliflower and as a favor to him, I thought I would give this gratin recipe a try. Oh my goodness – I absolutely loved it! Because I was making this on a work night, I thought I would expedite the process and prepare the mashed cauliflower the night before. It worked beautifully and all I needed to do the next evening was to sauté the onions and garlic, mix it with the mashed cauliflower, top it with cheese and bake it alongside my pork tenderloin. It was an awesome dinner and I can honestly say the cauliflower gratin was my favorite part! Thank you for restoring my faith in this noble veggie! :)
